A simple starter recipe, inspired by Restaurante Cierzo in Barcelona, Spain

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 ball of burrata
  • A sprinkling of rocket
  • 3-4 good quality anchovies
  • A pinch of crushed chilli flakes
  • A drizzle of olive oil extra virgin
Instructions
  1. This dish calls for burrata, but if you can't get your hands on it, good quality buffalo mozzarella can be a good stand in. Start by pouring away the liquid and placing the ball in the centre of the plate

  2. Next, drape 3-4 anchovies on the top of the burrata ball. If you can, it's worth spending a little extra on a tin or fresh packet of really good quality anchovies

  3. Place a handful or rocket leaves around the plate. Not too many, so that it looks messy, but just enough so that the colour balances with the rest of the dish

  4. Finally, sprinkle a few chilli flakes and drizzle a good glug of the olive oil over the burrata, and enjoy!
